Homecoming is a week in October where students get the opportunity to dress up each day and pick their class at the homecoming football game.

“Homecoming is always fun because we get to show off our school spirit,” senior Chesney Friesenhahn said. “Being able to have the opportunity represent my class for this event is very memorable.”

This year’s class representatives are freshmen Arieana Ramirez and Xsavior Martinez, sophomores Esperanza Mendoza and Carlos Flores, juniors Preslee Quisenberry and Gehrig Runyan and this years senior nominees for homecoming king and queen are Abby Whitaker, Kiana Monreal, Chesney Friesenhahn , Elizabeth Puente, Daniel Ramirez, Connor Schmidt, Seth Maldanado and Marques Burford.

“It’s pretty cool knowing that a lot of people voted for me,” Runyan said. “The fact that they chose me to represent the class of 2019 felt rewarding.”

Homecoming allows you to dress up during the week, see your old friends, and to have a good time while you watch the team you’re rooting for.
